It looks like Slaine just can’t catch a break. He finally found an ally on the Martian side in Cruhteo, only to have Cruhteo murder and himself captured by Saazbaum, the true traitor in the Orbital Knights. It’s strange, though…I thought that Cruhteo was in on the assassination plot too. I must have confused him with Saazbaum because they look basically the same other than hair color.
What happens to Slaine now? Saazbaum clearly realizes that he knows most of the important parts of the assassination plot. But he only captures Slaine, rather than killing him like Cruhteo. That means that he plans on doing something with him…simple more torture for information or will he use Slaine in some way related to his father?
